A series of concerts have helped a Weston church to raise funds for a mission to Albania.

Milton Baptist Church has put on a number of musical events to raise cash for a cause close to its heart.

Albania is one of the poorest countries in Europe, with nearly one quarter of the population living in extreme poverty.

Rev Bob McKay is leading a team of the church's young people on a mission to the country at the end of July to try to help the poor communities.

Acclaimed musician Richard Lennox - a professional pianist and organist - performed at the church in October, raising more than £800 for the cause.

The second concert in April also raised more than £1,300.
